Boston University center Corey Trivino is expected to miss the remainder of the 2009-10 season after suffering a fractured right fibula in Saturday’s 5-2 victory over Maine, the school announced on Wednesday.
Trivino has appeared in all 28 games this season for the Terriers, tallying 15 points on four goals and 11 assists. He scored the game’s first goal in Saturday’s win before suffering the injury in the third period. He has centered the Terriers’ top line since the team returned from the break in January.
“This is obviously a devastating injury for Corey and our team,” Terriers coach Jack Parker said in a statement. “After really coming along toward the end of his freshman season, he has blossomed into a strong first-line center, especially on defense, and it will be difficult to adjust our lineup based on the way he and our team have been playing as of late.
“Fortunately for Corey, he is only a sophomore. Once his injury has healed, we expect him to pick up where he left off and continue to develop into an All-America-caliber centerman here at BU.”
Trivino, who was selected by the New York Islanders in the second round (36th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, has totaled 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) in 60 career games at BU.
